Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (shoulder) is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons. McFadden got in a full week of practice and is not expected to miss the Week 6 game.
McFadden has struggled to get going this season, getting just 201 rushing yards on 57 carries, for 3.5 YPC, with one TD.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should be rightly concerned with how DMC has struggled in offensive coordinator Greg Knapp's new zone blocking scheme, which has torpedoed Oakland's whole offense. Head coach Dennis Allen has insisted that the team adjusted the scheme to better fit DMC's running style, but we'll have to see it to believe it.
DMC is one of the most talented backs in the league, but as long as he's hamstrung by this new scheme, his fantasy value will be limited. He's no more than a RB2 against the Falcons.
